Take a seat, James Harrison

Posted on: July 13, 2011 9:35 am
 
So how hard does Roger Goodell hit James Harrison?

It has to be hard, right? In other leagues, players -- star players -- utter gay-bashing slurs and are fined large sums of money. Harrison just uttered one ... and according to this account of a story in Men's Journal, he uttered it about Roger Goodell.

So I'm thinking $250,000 and a game suspension. Maybe more, given that Harrison has been a thorn in the league's side for years -- handing out concussions as if they were lollipops, attacking players in the head in an era when that is strictly forbidden. This is an accumulation of offenses, of various varieties, and Harrison isn't getting the message.

Whatever Goodell does to Harrison, I'll support it.

And I'm thinking Ben Roethlisberger might enjoy it, too. Don't tell me you missed what Harrison told Men's Journal about his quarterback's play in the Super Bowl loss to Green Bay:

"Hey, at least throw a pick on their side of the field instead of asking the D to bail you out again. Or hand the ball off and stop trying to act like Peyton Manning. You ain't that and you know it, man; you just get paid like he does."

Is anyone else shocked that Clark is from Wisconsin?? I would have never guessed from his idiotic posts.

I do not say this very often (never) on here because the 99% of the comments are idiotic, but yours is brilliant. Doyel is essentially implying that he wants people he interviews to give reheased answers rather than speak their minds.

Let me slow it down for some of you folks.....it doesn't matter WHAT he said.  A "reporter" is suggesting that someone gets fined and suspended because he was answering a REPORTERS question (regardless of how stupid th answer is).  Logically no one would answer any questions truthfully anymore for fear of being fined and suspended if Doyel had his way.  Then we'd hear all the reporters lament how boring everyone is because they all give cookie cutter answers. 

It has nothing to do with agreeing or disagreeing with anything Harrison said.  You can say he should be fined or suspended all you want if that's what you believe, but your job doesn't revolve around someone answering your questions. If it did, as in the case with Doyel, then you are just being foolish.

Correct me if I'm wrong.  The players are being locked out, which means they aren't being paid, which means they aren't really under contract, which means there is no code of conduct they have to follow?  Wouldn't it be illegal for RG to suspend or fine Harrison for anything he says right now?
